Adopted from stepper motor control, this command method uses two digital inputs to control motion. One input typically increments position or velocity while the other indicates the direction of motion.
- This is the easiest way to transition a machine from steppers to servos because the same stepper controller can be used to control the servo drives
ADVANCED Motion Controls' Capabilities
- Step & Direction ratios are fully adjustable from simple 1:1 where 1 step = 1 encoder count to arbitrary values (ex: 12:34)
- Step & Direction command can be used in current, velocity, or position mode
